A work in progress, this sample of One Hundred is part of a larger project where a tailor-made circuit ignites dozens of smoke flares at the same time, creating a mass of colour suspended in air for a few minutes. The idea behind it aims to give a fictional ethereal being physical manifestation in the form of mist and smoke. This piece is to be carried and documented in several locations.
The following three images belong to a series of paintings intended to depict imagined forces of creation. The colours are provided by pigments ejected from smoke flares. The pigments land on an acrylic-prepared canvas where they mix and follow the traces of the brush.
Project made in collaboration with architect Lorenza Esquinca.
